Experience luxury rail travel at its very best aboard the Northern Belle train
Our 2023 programme is further enhanced with the inclusion of a Champagne reception, Caviar and Blinis, upgraded Sommelier wine selection matched perfectly for each course, Port with the cheese board, Fortnum & Mason tea, and a memorable gift on departure. We've also brought back Champagne Afternoon Tea which includes a bottle of Laurent-Perrier champagne per couple.
The Northern Belle has been voted one of "the best train trips in the world" by readers of the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller magazine for the second year in a row.
The magazine said: "It’s all about the food – and the scenery. The meal services are exquisite, offering fine dining crafted mostly from UK suppliers so you can enjoy classic British fare as the heaths, meadows and dales roll on by."
Beyond the world of ordinary first-class there has been an almost secret world. Since the dawn of railways there has existed a world of private luxury trains and only a handful remain. The Northern Belle is one such Train, and the most luxurious, carefully restored to its former glory by the Venice Simplon-Orient Express. Welcome to our world.
Our mission is simple; to exceed our guests' expectations. We are constantly striving to improve the experience, make special memories for our passengers & operate the most luxurious train.
